Sherlock Holmes TV series
This series is wonderful. The half-hour format does not permit the many enjoyable details A. C. Doyle wrote, but the pace is lively, the characters are well-drawn and the stories are well-told.
Some cases are adaptations of Doyle and some are not.
The lead is played by Leslie Howard's son, Ronald Howard. The resemblance is obvious. I love Holmes in all his iterations except those that seem to try to curry favor with more current sensibilities. This series does not. Do not overlook these little gems.
Given the limitations of the series, I think five stars is appropriate.
